I absolutley adore the song you do this songfic on. Your version is oh so funny (excuse the pun). I'm actually giggling, right now, as I write this. Great job.

The mental images this brought to mind made me laugh hysterically :D I'm impressed, lol I was singing the lyrics in my head as I read, and they are quite good. Good job!!

Author's Response: Hello the smart1, brilliant pen-name, btw! I'm chuffed to bits you like my version of Ms Gaynor's classic tune - or should I say RONs version? For me, his encounter with the Acromuntulae is one of the best parts of CoS, and I simply couldn't resist dedicating a little ode to the spider scene (and especially Ron's reaction to said spiders). So glad you enjoyed, and thanks for R & R-ing, Kara's Aunty ;)

So, we are again. I've read this poem/fic/spoof like three times, and in all of my epic failitude, I've forgotten to leave you a review (the bestest reward for fan fiction).

XD. Just...XD Picturing Ron pissing his pants in petrification at the sight of acromantulas just makes my day. Sure, I'd be even more terrified than he was, but it doesn't mean that I can't sit here and enjoy his misery in my spider-free house. I just...gah, you're amazing. :D

Lovely work!


Author's Response:

Hello Jess,

 well I AM pleased to hear you enjoy the song so much that you've read it more than once :) And you are SO right - a review IS the best reward. And yours has made me smile like a Cheshire kneazle!!!

Thanks very much for R & R-ing,

M :o)

Hey again! I must say that you really have got talent in changing song lyrics and making them quite amusing :')

I really enjoyed this. It fit perfectly to the song (I was listening to it as I read this) and I think that the imagery you used worked so well, really. You managed to capture the whole scene in this. I loved it :p

And dripping on my shoe

Thanks for the laugh! :D

Hello IckleRonnieX,

gosh, what a lovely review. I'm so happy you enjoyed the merging of Gloria and Ron's fear of spiders. This was a fun song to (re)write because the original is all about ... well, surviving (or trying to) in the face of adversity - and that just seemed to apply to poor Ron so well in this situation. Plus, the tune is so catchy that it adds to the humour of the story (I hope).

Thanks for R & R-ing,

M :)

ha ha ha ha. Of course it helps that this really is my favourite song at Kareoke nights, but this is just very funny.
Nicely put together - poor Ron.

Author's Response:

Hello Equinox Chick,

It is a great Karaoke song, isn't it? That's one of the reasons I used it instead of a different one. Poor Ron and his fear of spiders! He's such a great character!

Thanks for R & R-ing. I'm thrilled you had a good giggle over it!

MERLIN'S PANTS! I was laughing so hard there were tears in my eyes. And, ha ha, my mind kept on reading the poem in that tune.

You, my dear, are truly *gropes around for the most fitting word* wonderful! Wish we were friends...I think you'll be great to hang around with.


Author's Response:

Hello Natalie,

See? I used your first name - that means we ARE friends. Don't think I would be fun to hang around with, though - I can be a right old misery-guts at times!


Not ALL the time, of course *chuckles*.


'I Will Survive' was just a wee bit of fun because every time I read about poor Ron in Aragog's 'home' - or every time I see it during the CoS film, I crack up, big time. Rupert Grint does such a brilliant job of portraying Ron's little quirks (and all aspects of his character)! He's so funny!

I'm so chuffed (very pleased) to know that this HP version of Gloria Gaynor's fabby song is gave you such a good laugh! And it was really, really sweet of you to say such nice things about me as well as the song. You've fairly brightened up a long, boring day at work, m'dear!


Thanks very much for R & R-ing,

Kara's Aunty :o)

This is the funniest thing that I've read. I was laughing the whole time. I had the persons voice who sings the song sing this and it was great. You did a great job on this.

Author's Response:

Hello ron lover,

what a lovely review! Taking the lyrics and melodies of classic songs and mixing them with memorable moments from Harry Potter (or Lord Of The Rings) is a bit of a hobby (and a lot of fun). It's a bit tricky sometimes trying to keep the metre (or is it meter in U.S.?) just right, or to blend in enough of the original lyrics to make the song still recognisable as the classic hit it was - but I get a massive kick out of it when it's finally done!


I'm delighted you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed writing it!


Kara's Aunty :)


P.S. Yours was probably the quickest review I've EVER had!! Thanks :o)
